Cambridge:Cambridge University Press. 1927. 75pp. Hardcover. No dust jacket. Red boards are lightly rubbed and shelf-worn.

"The Scel Mucci Mic Datho" or "The Story of Mac Datho's Pig" is justly regarded as one of the best of the Irish Saga's. In spite of its brevity it is very varied in character, and several different types of prose and poetry are represented in it. It is well adapted therefore to serve as an introduction to the study of Early Irish Literature in the original, and for this purpose the present reader is primarily intended."
